September 2018 – He was a true New Yorker, even though he spent his formative years in New Jersey. He was a best selling author on life in the kitchens of New York City and elsewhere. He rose from the ranks of a short order cook to one of this city’s most respected chefs and restaurateurs, and in 1998 he became Executive Chef at Brasserie Les Halles, noted for its locations on Park Avenue and in the Financial District.
Yet the world knew him best as the host of TV’s “No Reservation” and then “Parts Unknown”. And thought he left us way too early, the life and work of Anthony Bourdain was celebrated in the city he loved.
NYC VIBE was invited to attend an emotional screening in Tribeca to kick off the final season of Anthony’s “Parts Unknown”. It was revealed to NYC VIBE the Bourdain, in an impromptu comment on camera – expressed his sincere gratitude for the opportunity he was given to host this TV Program. “Parts Unknown” was much more than just another TV show about food, it was an inside look into a variety of cultures through the sharing of meals and breaking bread together. Above all it was a show that proved we all have something in common.
Bourdain only voiced over one episode, shot in Kenya, before his untimely passing. It has yet to be decided who will narrate the remaining eleven travelogues. For this debut episode, Bourdain had a notable co-host who talked about Anthony’s relationship with the city of New York. The episode captures Bourdain and Kamau Bell walking through the streets of Nairobi. Bell who had never been to Africa, is the host of TV’s “United Shades of America”. Bourdain and Bell found common ground in that they both have deep feelings about the cities they live in.
Wherever he traveled around the world – Anthony Bourdain took the spirit of New York City with him, and his legacy as New York City’s culinary and cultural ambassador will likely never be surpassed.
